I think its 6 months when there fully up.

Answer by Rogue Bullies
Some come up faster than others. It really just depends on the dog. My dogs ears came in later than other bullies I think his were fully standing by 3-4 months. I also taped them which you can do as well if you the correct way.

7 weeks old? He should be with his mom at least until 8 weeks so he can learn bite interaction. Since his missing out please make sure to socialize your bully a lot with other dogs at a young age and continue to.

No longer than three months they will start to stand. It takes time for the cartilage in dogs ears to get harder(so they will stand up). hope i helped

Hi ive got a 6 week old white bullterrier. His one ear is very sharp but the other ones tip is about a milimeter shorter and its not so sharp. Why would this be? His mom is brindel and his dad is white like him but the parents ears differ from each other. Could it be that he got one ear from his mother and the other from his dad?

Tape them if they are not or they might not stand on there own. You can get a bull terrier book to show you how to do it or you can most likely look up pics on the internet. Becarefull as you make them even or you could end up with funny looking ears.

Sometimes the ears will go up and then back down when the dog teeth's. Tape them up and leave them for about and week and check them to see if they are standing up yet. Sometimes the ears need our help to stand. The original bull terrier did have floppy ears and after ear cropping became illegal in england they bred the dogs to have pointed ears.

When I got my Bull Terrier puppy at 2 months, both ears only stood up half way. After 5 months, both of his ears began to stand upright. After 7 months, one ear stands upright and the tip of the other has dropped on the last third.
He is now 8 months old and his left ear remains the same (partially dropped)
